Missionary dating is a phrase used in a Christian context to describe when a person of one religious persuasion dates a person with differing beliefs for the purpose of converting him or her.
Synonymous phrases include "dating for Jesus
" or "flirt to convert
". The concept of missionary dating is sometimes used to justify or rationalize to one's self, family, or religious community, romantic interest in a non-believer, if the relationship might be frowned on otherwise.
- I have got a lot of my SDA brothers and sisters doing that, what do you think?
- How would you advise a missionary dater?
- If you have a brother/ sister in Christ and is doing that, has been advised and refused to take counsel what do you do?
I will be grateful if any of the above questions are clarified from a diverse group.
